First 27-inch iMac Teardown Hits the Web: Beautiful Inside AND Out!

First 27-inch iMac Teardown Hits the Web: Beautiful Inside AND Out!

As the first 27-inch iMac orders begin arriving on customer doorsteps, MacRumors forum member R.OC has already torn one apart to show the world what it looks like on the inside! The 2012 iMac certainly looks a great deal cleaner inside than the 2011 iMac. It’s astonishing how much they’ve cleaned up the internal design!

As expected, the 27-inch iMac includes a slot for a blade SSD (used with Fusion Drive, or in the 768GB SSD offering from Apple), and a full-size 3.5-inch hard drive. It’s also especially notable that the graphics card is now integrated directly onto the logic board, in comparison to previous models which featured a removable daughter-card with its own connector. While that’s great for saving space inside the iMacs, it could make out-of-warrantee repairs far, far more expensive…

Check out the post over at the MacRumors forums for more pictures covering all of the details! That should give you your fix of hardware pr0n – at least until iFixit publishes their own teardown!
